I’m not creative, I’m just a pragmatic doer with good taste.
Today, there’s a million different ways to get your event online, there’s Facebook, Eventbrite, Meetup and many other options. If you want a stand alone web presence however - a site, the process is a hassle at the very best, not to mention expensive.
With Confetti you’ll be able to create a beautiful site for your event, handle signups as well as building that hype. No coding or design skills needed.
This one is for you, meetup runners, wedding planners and organizers of conferences, hackathons and festivals, so that you can put your time, money and energy on what you do best - creating great experiences.

Since then, the group has grown from one member to over 1 300, making it one of the largest meetup groups in the Nordics. Sthlm.js has hosted talks by thought leaders like Robert Nyman, Paul Lewis and many more, tickets usually sell out within one minute after having been released.
Since there hasn’t been a conference in the Nordics on the subject before, we thought it was due time. We want to bring everyone together and spend two full days on what we love the most - code.

Where do I publish a text or article if I don't have or want a website? How to we collaborate around text privately as well as publicly. Programmers got Github, writers have nothing.
I started out the summer of 2012 with a grand vision, but had to put the project on ice after a couple of months due limited time etc. Interesting enough did several big shots in the startup industry launch services trying solving similar problems. Medium, Draftin, Editorially and Quip to mention a few. Great minds think alike, haha.

No talent, just one and a half decade of rock solid passion.
Startuplocation is a map with startups in Stockholm. The purpose is to connect the startup community and to market Sweden internationally.
One of my biggest driving forces is meeting inspiring people who dare chasing their dreams. This may sound like a kliché, but for me it's really true. I founded Startuplocation with Martina Elm and Jonatan Heyman to meet more of these amazing people. I'm responsible for all design and most of the frontend.

I spent almost two years as the only designer at Mynewsdesk. We were a product team consisting of a dussin developers and two project leaders.
Mynewsdesk is a PR service from Sweden with 100+ employees, 5000+ paying customers, 45 000+ free customers and millions of visitors. I started when the company had been in operations for eight years without a full time designer. There for did a lot of my time go to setting design guidelines and update the visual profile of the entire site.
